The real story here should be “How Algolia Uses Algolia to super charge internal employee effectiveness between lots of SaaS apps”. And also how they used their own product as part of their #orgtools

The Electron part is turning it into a Windows/Mac desktop experience. I would also want to see this deployed as a company mobile web / native mobile app.
